ReactJS Developer – £40,000-£50,000 - London

our client is looking for a React/Redux developer to join our partner portal team, building the infrastructure that allows customers to provision our client services and to sell on to their customers.

 

The technology backing the portal is a mixture of PHP (Symfony) and MySQL in the backend, and React/Redux on the frontend. We provision and make changes to infrastructure using Ansible, and host the platform on Microsoft Azure.

About the role

Day to day, you'll usually be working from our friendly London based office with 2-3 other developers working on the project. The team is mostly self-organising with a flat-ish management structure, with regular syncs and good communication processes to ensure nobody gets stuck. There is steering from the leadership team when needed, but other than that, we should be able to trust whoever’s working on something to do things well. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop technical and business skills in a fast growing startup and to exchange knowledge and skills with a passionate and experienced team.

Nice-to-haves

●     Experience working with Create React App

●     You've any experience of working in an ISO27001 certified organisation.

Responsibilities

●     Developing a mission-critical React / Redux / Bootstrap 4 frontend client 

●     Liaising with designers to implement frontend experiences based on design discussion or documentation

●     Liaising with the senior leadership team to ensure the project is on the correct course

●     Collaborating with the rest of the team with code reviews, evaluating and discussing the best solution for some technical or product requirement, and documenting our work and architecture

About you

●     Good interpersonal skills (at all levels) with the confidence to state a clearly reasoned and articulated viewpoint.

●     You should be happy to take initiative in your tasks and be relatively self-organising.

●     Eager to ship releases and new features, but also able and willing to debate and put forward improvements to process and how we do things.

●     The right to work in the EU.
